PR: Jay-Z Vs. Lana Del Rey (Scott Melker Remix) + THE RUB
Courtesy Scott Melker.
Since everyone is on the Lana Del Rey bandwagon, I figured it was time to rework one of her tracks... I posted it publicly yesterday, and its been getting a ton of great feedback. Its presently number 5 on the hypem twitter popular chart, and 13 on the main popular chart. So obviously any blog love, facebook shares, tweets and "hearts" on hypem.com are much appreciated. It's a "mashup"/remix of Jay-Z's "Dirt Off Your Shoulders," Lana's "Born To Die, Jamie Foxx's and Rick Ross's "Living Better Now," Ice Cube's "I Rep The West," and some self-produced elements.
Miami-native Mac Soto continues his musical display by covering Katy Perry's "Firework," giving the song an indie-pop, synth flavor with crisp, soulful vocals. He prides himself in making songs with a laid-back mentality that refuses to take itself too seriously. He is currently working on an upcoming collaborative project with Parable, titled Parable vs. Mac Soto. Stay tuned for more news on their Facebook page, and catch more of Mac Soto's solo releases on Tumblr.

From the inception of the Birdmen of Alcatraz, to the pre-super stardom scribble jam battles against greats such as Eminem, to the decade long takeover of the Indianapolis Hip-Hop scene by The Mudkids, to the present day where the name Rusty Redenbacher can be heard on WTLC, seen on IMC TV, and deciphered in blog and viral posts felt around the world, the founding member of The Mudkids, Lazarus, and Tornado Alley #ATFU brings you “The Tinkerer”.
In Rusty Redenbacher's 2 decade plus run of the Indy music scene he has successfully captured the hearts of a progressive arts community on the verge of national super stardom. His multiple releases with rock collectives Birdmen of Alcatraz and Lazarus, hip-hop groups The Mudkids and Tornado Alley and more have shown the local, regional, and national music scene the extreme versatility and dexterity it takes to be embraced by not only his peers but music lovers of all shapes, sizes, and cross-genre backgrounds.
Whether it be the thousands of albums Rusty has sold as the head of The Mudkids, the fan admiration and communal support that constantly has voted him as Indy's Top Artist, the large quantity of free music Rusty had given away to the masses while introducing his #ATFU movement or the vast experiences gained while performing alongside legends including the Wu-Tang Clan, The Roots, Dead Prez, Blackalicious, Atmosphere, and more, one thing that is for certain, legions of Hip-Hop, Rock, Funk, Reggae, and Dubstep fans alike are ready to embrace “The Tinkerer”.
While deeply rooted in the classic horror culture of yesteryear, “The Tinkerer”and its 18 tracks takes the listener on a journey through the laboratory of sound and spirit known as the Iron Man Monster Factory as front man Rusty Redenbacher aka The Tinkerer utilizes a unique blend of hip-hop turntabilism and intricate cross-genre instrumentation in creating the productions behind every track featured on the album. Front man Rusty Redenbacher provided in a recent interview, “I just wanted to make an album that I thought was interesting. I was free to do whatever I wanted and I did. I had a great time making 'The Tinkerer' and I look forward to seeing how people react to it. It's for science, man.”
The lead single and video “Iron Man Monster Factory” sees Redenbacher laying a heavy set of bars over the pounding thud and crack from a loop of a Nirvana song while “The Tinkerer's” follow up single “Shake” could pass for something Prince wrote during his '1999' era, with a reverb and distortion-heavy vocal and melody reminiscent of a punk-rock Phil Spector.
Fans of Rusty Redenbacher is his many facets all have something to rejoice about as “The Tinkerer” moves the Indy music scene moves one step closer to the limelight.

Shows in Melbourne (x2), Brisbane (x2), Frankston, Adelaide, and Perth have completely SOLD OUT with SECOND AND FINAL show dates announced in all cities to meet the screams of Sixty's devoted army that are covering his Facebook wall.
Queensland was the first state to show it's hunger for Uncle Six, with the under 18's show selling out within minuets of going on sale. The 18+ gig at Brisbane's HiFi Bar then followed suit selling out within an hour of tickets being available. A second Brisbane 18+ date has now been announced for Monday 11th of June at the HiFi to meet the needs of Sixty's Queensland based devotees.
Adelaide's all ages show at The Gov was the next to put up the SOLD OUT sign, tickets here were all but gone within two hours of hitting the streets. A SECOND & FINAL ALL AGES DATE is now ON SALE for Thursday 21st of June at The Gov. Sixty's home town of Melbourne then came to the party with the 18+ show at the HiFi Bar done and sold by early afternoon, a second date has also been announced here for Thursday 14th of June. Overnight tickets to Melbourne, Frankston, Wollongong and Perth shows were snapped up and SOLD OUT by 8am this morning. Once again Sixty has answered the cries for more shows putting on a SECOND AND FINAL under 18's show on Sunday 24th of June at the Astor Theatre in Perth.
The heat around Melbourne rapper 360 is absolutely undeniable at the moment. Is there anything that Sixty can't do? His juggernaut continues to roll on into 2012 with album ‘Falling & Flying' reaching certified PLATINUM sales status and current single ‘Boys Like You ft. Gossling' achieving DOUBLE PLATINUM status within the space of a week. The album itself has remained in the ARIA top 50 charts for a MASSIVE 23 WEEKS and has been sitting pretty in the top 10 for the last seven weeks, currently holding strong at #6. Equally as impressive single 'Boys Like You' has spent 10 weeks in the ARIA top 50 singles charts - the last six weeks in the top 10, currently sitting at #5.
It's onwards and upwards for 360, who knows what else 2012 has in store for the man. One thing we can say for sure is that if you haven't already seen the electric live stage performance this guy puts on then you better run out and grab tickets while you still can.

South East London recording artist Multiple Skillz has been making a real name for himself getting a bunch of superb reviews and feedback from his latest release 'Epiphany Of Greatness' which is hosted by the well respected DJ Cage. One of the many reasons that he has been so well received by the British Hip-Hop world is his choice of style and his skill to twist up positive and intelligent lyrics about real life concepts.
